I just renewed my Toronto Star subscription.

But it got me thinking, now that i’m reading the newspaper in the morning i’ve stopped picking up the free Metro and (i can’t even remember the name of the crappy other one).

A couple of years back they changed the format of the Metro. I’m not sure i noticed THAT much of a difference, but i miss this cartoon.

It was funny. And at times it was really, really dark. Which is exactly the thing that, when you’re a commuter, appeals to you in the morning.

So they upped their crappy Canadian Idol coverage, and dumped the good cartoon – and so i went and started paying for the newspaper.
